Typical Mexican food decor. Excellent chips and salsa on the table. Pretty good Chile and overall pretty good Tex Mex food. I understand dinners are pretty much the same— good

What a gem! We had a fantastic experience here. Our kids ate free (Sunday dinner) and there was a funny magician as well. We loved the food. Everyone had a great time and we can’t wait to go back.

Stopped in for a sociable beer after a game of golf. We did bend and shared a chili dog with a covering of outstanding slaw. We are going to buy for our own cookout this house made slaw

While this is a Mexican themed dining spot, you'll find other choices on the menu. And if you like Happy Hour grub like I do, you'll be in heaven! Wide selection of $5 apps and large draft beer variety.

This has always been one of my favorite places to eat. They have incredible food and great service. I highly recommend the enchiladas and the quesadillas. They are very generous with the chips which I absolutely appreciate!

Restaurant was dirty, food was tasteless and meat was rubbery. Even our margaritas were really bad. Don’t waste your time or money. I would rather go hungry!

Lots of cheese on their foods. The inside is really cute & colorful, but a bit dingy. It can be crowded with the local college kids at times. The drink menu is standard for a Mexican eatery.

Sorry. I really don’t like to write bad reviews. Starting with the positive, our server was nice and the staff was friendly. The food was bad though. Really bad. The tomatoes on our nachos and in the rest of our food seemed like they were...More

We love coming to Aunt Chilada's after a challenging hike in Sleeping Giant State Park. There is a nice outdoor terrace for dining with a great view of the Mountain. They have an extensive Margarita menu, and the food was delicious. Free chips and salsa,...More

The last time I went to Aunt Chilada's I told myself I would never go there again, that was a couple of years ago. Yesterday I needed to meet a friend and this was the most convenient place to do so. We were greeted and...More
